SPARKING A WHOLE NEW LIFE AND ATTITUDE

Hi, I'm Lisa. I am a physical therapist and mother of a six year old little girl. Although I do not disgrace my profession based on my looks and eating habits, I could definitely set a better example.
I do try to instill in my daughter the importance of healthy food and exercise (not that the exercise part is a problem for her because she NEVER stops!). I am trying to set a better example for her and want to be able to keep up with her for many years to come. I want our relationship to ...
Hi, I'm Lisa. I am a physical therapist and mother of a six year old little girl. Although I do not disgrace my profession based on my looks and eating habits, I could definitely set a better example.
I do try to instill in my daughter the importance of healthy food and exercise (not that the exercise part is a problem for her because she NEVER stops!). I am trying to set a better example for her and want to be able to keep up with her for many years to come. I want our relationship to be developed around getting out and doing things, not sitting around in the house watching tv and eating junk. I hope that her endless energy will forever be a part of her and spur me into more activity, keeping us on a healthy road throughout our lives. Hopefully, we can get and keep her daddy on this road as well, keeping us together as a family.
Like most of the people on this site, I of course have battled with my weight a good portion of my life and am tired of it. Hopefully, this is the end of that and the beginning of a lifestyle change. Although I still plan on enjoying my food, I don't ever want to look up again to find that I can't wear any of my clothes and need to lose 30-40 pounds. Although my honey loves me no matter what, I don't love myself when I get like that. And I never want to feel like I don't love myself. Plus, if I love myself, that will help my daughter to know the importance of loving herself. I don't ever want her life to be defined by food.
Now I know my size shouldn't determine my self worth. And it generally isn't my size that does it, it's the loss of energy, the lose of desire, and the way that food starts to consume my life that does it. The food taste great, but I manage to lose myself in the food and it shows by the loss of concern regarding my health and appearance.
No longer will food define who I am rather than letting it be simply the source of energy for my body, so I can define my self based on my actions....my contributions to my daughter, my family, my life's work, my self. This is the first step towards a meaningful rest of my life......I've caught the SPARK. CARPE DIEM.
